Unbroken: Angelina Jolie and cast talk about the incredible true story

Angelina Jolie 's UNBROKEN is the powerful story of Louis Zamperini, an Olympian and WWII war hero who survived incredibly difficult odds - including being stranded at sea for almost 50 days and being held prisoner in a Japanese POW camp for two years - thanks to his unbreakable will and patriotism. It's an incredible tale of resilience, one that certainly made me think, "What the hell...

Review: Unbroken

PLOT : During World War II, a former Olympic track star by the name of Louis “Louis” Zamperini is shot down with his crew over the Pacific Ocean on a search and rescue mission. Along with two other survivors, he finds himself stranded at sea. Waiting for rescue, he is ultimately brought to shore only to be placed in a POW camp. This is a true story of one man’s survival, and it sure is...

New behind-the-scenes look at the origins of Angelina Jolie's Unbroken

Angelina Jolie ’s UNBROKEN opens this week and if you're like me then you're still curious to see how things work out for this project. The initial trailer surprised me and subsequently sent me down a rabbit hole of information about Louis Zamperini's life (check out his Wiki page ). What I found was an incredible true story that thankfully will be shared and as...

Angelina Jolie plans to give up acting permanently and focus on directing

Angelina Jolie is an award-winning actress known around the world for her humanitarian work as well as being one of the sexiest women in Hollywood. She has appeared in everything from action franchises to critically-acclaimed dramas. Looking at her, you would never in a million years expect her to be anywhere but magazine covers and movie posters but that is not where she feels most...

Angelina Jolie's Unbroken gets a powerful new trailer

Back in the summer, the first trailer for UNBROKEN was revealed, unleashing upon the world a movie full of emotional strings being pulled with a stirring symphonic score and a powerful underdog story. While that may sound formulaic and even a little sarcastic, it is the best way to describe Angelina Jolie 's film. This new trailer gives us a lot of the same but amps it all up....

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to team up again for By the Sea

There may have been some controversy surrounding the release of MR. AND MRS. SMITH, as the chemistry between Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie was undeniable. They've moved on to other projects since but I suppose it was only a matter of time before the two were brought together again in hopes of striking that sickly sweet box office gold a second time. For round 2, it looks to be under...

Get inspired by the trailer for the Angelina Jolie-directed Unbroken

Angelina Jolie 's directorial debut, IN THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY, was not met with many kind words. That's not stopping her from stepping up to the plate with her sophomore effort, UNBROKEN, which tells the real-life story of Olympian-turned-POW, Louis Zamperini. Check out the trailer-iest trailer music here: Crafting a film on a real hero is a hard task...

Exclusive Cool Video: Soundtrack tribute to Hans Zimmer's Gladiator score!

One of the most memorable aspects about Ridley Scott 's GLADIATOR, outside the bloody battles, awesome speeches, and tremendous performances was the amazing score by Hans Zimmer and vocalist/musician Lisa Gerrard. Although Zimmer was already well-established as one of the best composers working in Hollywood at the time, GLADIATOR nudged him up even more and has since inspired a...

Unbroken and Skins star Jack O'Connell to play MI6 agent in Section 6

The Wrap has learned SKINS star Jack O'Connell is in final negotiations to play the younger lead in SECTION 6. The film will be about the creation of the MI6 during World War I, and the first director of the intelligence agency (who by the way, was also the inspiration for M in the...

Review: Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom

PLOT: The life and times of Nelson Mandela ( Idris Elba )- from his early years as a lawyer in South Africa, to his involvement with the ANC (African National Congress) through his twenty-seven years in prison, to his eventual release and election as the first black president of South Africa. REVIEW: MANDELA: LONG WALK TO FREEDOM is certainly a well-timed film....

The Sharpeville Massacre is brought to disturbing life in this clip from Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom

Idris Elba deserves to be recognized and I hope MANDELA: LONG WALK TO FREEDOM is the movie to do it. After turns on THE WIRE and THE OFFICE along with last year's PROMETHEUS, Elba is still not a household name. He has built a fanbase due to his BBC series LUTHER and this summer's PACIFIC RIM, and yet Elba is not where he needs to be, which is an A-list star. MANDELA: LONG WALK TO...

The Good, the Bad and the Badass: Hans Zimmer

Last week, we took a look at the career of a truly badass helmer, Kathryn Bigelow . However, while people are quick to praise directors, actors and writers when a movie goes over well, often a crucial component, that of the film score, is overlooked. The following badass is without a doubt, the go-to guy for pretty much every genre of film score out there, and a guy we all know and...
